Is working from home a good thing? Maybe it really depends on the perspective. Is it good for businesses or just for workers? Unfortunately, we think it hasn’t been great for productivity. Too many times we’ve tried to contact people in government departments or large corporates and it’s very obvious that they’re working from home (or somewhere not in a work environment).
